Inverse regression for ridge recovery II: Numerics. (arXiv:1802.01541v2 [math.NA] UPDATED)

We investigate the application of sufficient dimension reduction (SDR) to a noiseless data set derived from a deterministic function of several variables. In this context, SDR provides a framework for ridge recovery. In this second part, we explore the numerical subtleties associated with using two inverse regression methods---sliced inverse regression (SIR) and sliced average variance estimation (SAVE)---for ridge recovery. This includes a detailed numerical analysis of the eigenvalues of the resulting matrices and the subspaces spanned by their columns. After this analysis, we demonstrate the methods on several numerical test problems. 查看全文>>
